Summary:
Side characters can be heroes too in this charming and fast-paced adventure that is The Land of Stories meets The Phantom Tollbooth!

Indira has been a character-in-waiting her entire life. So she can’t believe her luck when she’s finally chosen to travel to Fable and study at the renowned Protagonist Preparatory, a school known for producing the best heroes.

But Indira’s dreams of achieving hero status don’t exactly go as planned. A failed audition lands her in the school’s side-character track, and her best efforts to prove advisors–famous characters like Alice from Wonderland and Professor Darcy–wrong are constantly sabotaged. Indira is starting to feel like an evil antagonist might be to blame.

As the danger spreads, Indira discovers all of Fable is under siege. With her friends Maxi and Phoenix by her side, she pieces together clues that will reveal who is behind the dark magic threatening them all. But the more Indira uncovers, the more doubt she feels about her place in this world of stories. After all, can a side character really save the day?

My Review:
What a WONDERFUL, FUN book this one is!! I sucked it down so fast!! The story of Indira Story and her chance to be a character in Fable is absolutely delightful!!

Written for young readers, it has a Harry Potter vibe to it. Except what was freakin ingenious was that it is about books being written, characters being chosen to be in them, and it’s a school where the characters study and hope to be chosen by an Author. The world building is so incredible and entertaining! There are bookmarks who are tall, thin, odd characters who walk around talking about the book they’re reading. Then there are DOGears, who run around causing mischief. I mean who wants their book dog eared?!! There is one world, then you look up and there’s another above it!! There are dragon eye transporters to take you up to the other world. Plus the world’s themes keep changing. There’s so much more in this world, it is filled with interesting things!! The characters are so well written, and the plot is adventurous, suspenseful and an exciting ride!!

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone, old and young!! In fact I ordered a hardback copy for a friend’s daughter and i think she’ll love it!!!!

Some see it… Some don’t…
People in the town of Deer Park, Texas are vanishing. There is a strange museum, known as Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, that appears overnight. Perrie Madeline’s best friend and ex-boyfriend are among the missing. Perrie and her friend August go on a pursuit for them in the mysterious museum. Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with the disappearances?
Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is the start of a thrilling duology full of magic, danger, and romance.

My Review
“You die here, you stay here.”

This book was such a wonderful surprise! It went straight into my favorites folder when I was done. It’s a YA, Urban Fantasy, Retelling and what a fantastic story it is!!

Candace Robinson has a very imaginative and creative mind!! I’m always eager to see what she will come up with next! This was very unique! It is a bit creepy, dark, suspenseful, adventurous and there’s a tad bit of romance in there. There are portals in this story, but not time travel. They are stuck in Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, which is a Glass museum of fairytales. Not your average fairytales, but twisted fairytales. Anyway, they become stuck in the displays and these portals suck them from one display to the next.

The characters are very well written and you really grow to care about them. As they travel through the museum, from one display to the next (Sleepy Hollow, Jack the Ripper, etc), they hope the next portal will lead them home. Each display is vividly written and easy to picture and you can imagine you are there, which makes it all very intense and exciting!!

I highly recommend the Quinsey Wolfe Duet, both books are so awesome, cleverly imagined and written. Grab Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault while it’s on sale!

#Healed #StoneAndPepper #CliffsideBay

BLURB:

It’s Cliffside Bay and beyond in this heartwarming enemies-to-lovers romantic adventure from USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.

Stone Hickman is the last of a dying breed. The former Marine believes in integrity, service to his country, a hard day’s work, and taking care of his loved ones. When he meets the clever Pepper Griffin, their obvious attraction has him ready to count the stunning beauty among the people that he cares for. But Pepper doesn’t share the instant connection. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. And for honest, straightforward Stone, not knowing why only makes the rejection worse.

Pepper Griffin is the epitome of scrappy. For years she’s struggled to make acting her career without any help at all from her famous father. While she’s still accepting meager roles with little screen time, her best friend has steadily risen to the height of fame. To make matters worse, that very same friend is happily in love, newly engaged, and wants poor Pepper, whose love life is as sad and pathetic as her last film role, to serve as her maid-of-honor while Pepper’s enemy, Stone Hickman, is sure to be the groom’s best man.

Though Pepper despises the best man, she loves the bride-to-be more. To keep the peace, Pepper willingly includes Stone in the wedding planning process. When the unlikely pair find themselves stranded in a snowstorm while searching for the perfect venue, they’ll have to work together to survive the chill even if that means thawing Pepper’s heart.

My Review: Second To Surrender by Alexa Whitewolf

Second To Surrender

(Moonlight Rogues Book 2)

by Alexa Whitewolf

B9203E66-32D9-4678-A3A2-D0B9DD1BB655He fought for freedom and survived…

During his time in the military, Tristan Cayne has seen more than some do in an entire lifetime. Part of a special ops team tasked with hunting down creatures of the night, he spent his days tracking them, and his nights fighting them.….but not without demons that followed him back home.Back to the mainland, he moves to Rockland Creek, hoping for peace and quiet. Love isn’t in the cards, especially not after his last failed relationship. His wishes are answered, if only for a little while. Then his pack member Dominic turns out to be in charge of the same creatures Tristan spent months fighting. And those demons he thought were only in his nightmares? Well, they’re about to get pretty damn real.

In the midst of his struggle to cope, Daniela Da Silva calls for help, and Tristan has no choice but to answer. History ties them together with bonds thicker than blood, but more unsteady than ever. Because Dani’s not in town just for kicks. She’s hiding, and seeking protection…

The war that was brewing is at their doorstep…

Allies and enemies collide in this second installment, as the stakes grow higher every day. Dani’s hiding secrets, but will they harm the pack or help them? And while Tristan’s fighting for her protection, will he be able to defeat the demons prowling in his nightmares, robbing him of sleep?

…and no one is safe.

As Tristan fights the ultimate battle for his sanity, he also navigates the ever-murky waters of a new relationship. Destined to be together, or to fail? Only he and Dani can tell – that’s if they overcome the fear of losing each other. Their romance wasn’t written in the stars, and it sure as hell isn’t a fairytale. Then again, that’s what makes it worth it.

Stuck between a rival’s pack internal conflicts, a dragon wandering about like he owns the town, and the rest of the psychotic Da Silva family out to get them could just turn out to be the easy part. Fighting their connection, seeing if it’ll lead somewhere other than chemistry and a goold old roll in the hay? That’s another story all together.

Real or fake, truth or lie, the stakes are high. Tristan and Dani will have to trust each other and navigate the stormy seas together, or else risk being torn apart – forever.

*Book II in a new series of sizzling werewolves, forgotten folklore and untamed legends.*

He was given a new life, a new choice, a new path…

Once upon a time, Dominic Kosta didn’t have a last name. In fact, he had nothing growing up in a secluded orphanage in the mountains of Transylvania. Then an American couple adopted him, and life changed. He left behind the old
legends, the myths, the hunger within him.

He threw it all behind, choosing seclusion and a little town….

Rockland Creek may be a hole in the middle of nowhere, but Dom’s happy there. Life has its perks between fixing cars and seducing women. And best of all? There are no rules, other than Lucas’. Then Lucrezia San Marco walks in, and draws him in like a moth to a flame. Only, she only has eyes for Lucas, his boss – and alpha of the pack.

…filled with werewolves.

There’s nothing normal about Rockland Creek – or Dominic’s existence there. But things are about to get worse, and not just because he sees the girl he loves slipping through his fingers.

A war is brewing, eclipsing their romance and dragging old ghosts into town…

As Dominic navigates the murky waters of romance and obedience to his leader, his feelings for Lucrezia can no longer be tamed. But not everyone supports their relationship – and the Reapers have a word or two to say against it. As does Lucrezia’s ex, and the demons he brings with him.

Fire and ice, cold and hot, wolf and human. Dom and Luz will have to combine their differences and learn to compromise, or risk being torn apart by the wave of change unfurling onto Rockland Creek.

Book I in a new series of sizzling werewolves, forgotten folklore and untamed legends.

Enter Camelot… Enter the new world… But enter at your peril.

Vivienne du Lac has a simple life – or so she thinks. As a freelance researcher, she travels the world with no worry for tomorrow. Then one fateful night, an intruder threatens her life. She wakes up the next morning with no recollection of how she escaped, and no trace of the stranger.

Dreams she thought were innocent start making a helluva sense, and so begins a clash between what she was taught is real and the life she was always meant to live. Being the reincarnation of a mythical being – the Lady of the Lake – adds the kind of spice to her life she could have done without.

A tormented lover with shady connections to the local Mob, a sorcerer bent on destruction and a demon dog as a protector complete the cast of the first instalment, culminating in a fight for survival and identity.

But Avalon Dreams is only the beginning.

To find out what the past is all about, you’ll have to delve into Avalon Wishes, deeper into Camelot and its politics, into the Fae world and Arthur’s own bed.

Yet the adventure only comes to an end in Avalon Nightmares, with an epic conclusion and a battle between good and evil that will be nothing they expected…

Love, magic, betrayal and sacrifice run this series into a spiral of emotions. Get your copies today!

Praise for Avalon Dreams

“Alexa Whitewolf has turned over every detail and blended them into an atmosphere that comes to life (…) Mystery, dark magic and brilliant characters from both the past and present come to life in a wonderful fantasy that was written to be savored and lived within.” – TomeTender Blog

Praise for Avalon Wishes

“Often dark, the stories of Merlin, Morganna and Arthur, as well as that of the Lady of the Lake and Mordred come alive, while their connections to each other and all of the other amazing characters become more than “just a story.” Feel the joys, the twisted anger and fall into a tale of fantasy told like you have never experienced. – TomeTender Blog

Praise for Avalon Nightmares

“What I like best about Avalon Nightmares is there’s plenty of swoony romance, but also a great story along the way. Plus, the whole Merlin type theme has been freaking amazing! The writing sucks you in right away and doesn’t let go until the very end.” – Literarydust Blog

I was reading over the summary of the book before writing this review. The summary says it all, there’s not much more I can say about the story itself. But I will say, this is one of the best werewolf books I’ve ever read. Alexa Whitewolf was born in Romania and she grew up in the Transylvania region surrounded by epic mountains and a never ending stream of legends and stories. So between the legends and stories she grew up with and a very active imagination, you can see how she came up with the creation of First To Fall where Dominic came from Transylvania and the legends followed him.

I love Dominic (Dom) and Lucrezia (Luz)…they are such an awesome couple. Luz is a bit of a firecracker!! You cannot help but fall in love with Dom and Luz. The others in the pack: Lucas (pack leader), Tristan, and Finn are interesting and have there own story and I hope as the series goes on we get to learn about each pack member and see them get their mate. There’s so much I’d love to talk about, but I will give too much away. But you will love this story, it’s full of romance (of course), werewolves (duh), surprises, twists and turns, so much suspense!! It’s not just some romantic werewolf book, it’s very exciting!! There’s battles and people get hurt. So much happens! I was up late at night finishing it, because I couldn’t put it down!! I highly recommend this one guys!! 5++ Stars!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cover Reveal: August Prather Is Not Dead Yet by Danielle K. Roux

C1BFD551-8EC3-4439-A9EA-661CD449CB51August Prather Is Not Dead Yet

Publisher: Parliament House Press

Katherine Garnet is a writer who has never cared much about much, making it awfully difficult to create new content. Despite the fact she has the “edge” of being trans (according to her cis male editor) she is not looking to capitalize on her own personal story. Garnet tries to sneak a peek at her rival, August Prather’s, latest fantasy manuscript about a quest for the elixir of life. While reading, Garnet gets accidently dragged into a bizarre cross-country road trip that may or may not have a purpose and begins to see parallels in the story of the manuscript and the reality of their journey. Along the way, they encounter a parade of equally troubled individuals, including ghost-hunting priests, a robot magician, a discarded piece of furniture, a runaway teenager, and a Japanese rock star. As Garnet confronts her past, she begins to understand why someone might want to live forever.

13AA7797-EDE8-474D-9E8F-D70E2ED46CC7About the Author

Danielle K. Roux is a writer, teacher, and historian. She has a BFA in Architectural History from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), an MA in Architectural History from the University of Virginia, and an MS in Elementary Educational Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Danielle has always loved reading and telling stories – especially stories with adventure, mystery, humor and at least a little bit of spookiness. While living in Savannah, she worked as a ghost tour guide which meant she got paid to tell local history and lore to people and walk around at night looking at cemeteries and gorgeous old buildings that were probably haunted.

Danielle has been writing fiction since she was nine, after getting tired of reading from the perspective of white, straight male characters in fantasy novels. Her first written story involved a group of middle school girls who find necklaces used by a dead witch that give them supernatural powers. It was written in notebooks in purple and green gel pens and may or may not still exist. She is inspired by travelling to new places and reading about the stories tied to the landscape. She has at least three novels building in her brain (or wherever novels come from) and wishes she was writing them all right now….

Danielle lives with her wife and loud, orange tabby cat in Baltimore but dreams of places with mountains and cool air. Her bookshelves are full of true crime, ghost stories, architecture books, graphic novels, and the Harry Potter series. Her favorite book she has read in the past year is H is for Hawk because it combines biography, history and memoir. Now she really wants to learn falconry. Her dream library would be accessed through a secret door and look something like the library in the animated Disney Beauty and the Beast, although it would also have a cute barista or sentient coffee machine that once was said barista.

When she isn’t writing or thinking about writing, Danielle is building houses in the Sims, listening to podcasts, or taking Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what kind of salad she is based on her birth month. She is constantly re-watching Arrested Development, Murder She Wrote, Doctor Who, Archer and Sherlock. She is also a big fan of Orange is the New Black even though they killed her favorite character and Game of Thrones even though they will probably kill all her favorite characters. In an ideal world, she would go outside more and walk around, but there are bugs out there and nature makes her sneeze. She wishes she could learn to knit, grow a garden, and make her own cheese but there are only so many hours in the day. She is a Slytherin but usually feels like a Ravenclaw. She likes red wine and coffee but not at the same time. Her favorite pizza is pizza made in a brick oven with fresh mozzarella.

I was in a reading slump and had this cued up in my currently reading list for a while, just waiting for me to get myself back to reading. One day I said, that’s it I’m just going to open the book and give it a try. Well, it was a good move!!! This book was AMAZING!!!!! I’m officially out of my slump!

Candace Robinson has a very imaginative and creative mind!! It’s astonishing to think that this is her debut book! I’m eager to see what she will come up with next! This was very unique! It is a bit creepy, dark fantasy, suspenseful, adventurous and there’s a tad bit of romance in there. There are portals in this story, but not time travel. They are stuck in Quincey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, which is a Glass museum of fairytales. Not your average fairytales, but twisted fairytales. Anyway, they become stuck in the displays and these portals suck them from one display to the next.

The characters are very well written and you really grow to care about them. As they travel through the museum, from one display to the next (Sleepy Hollow, Jack the Ripper, etc), they hope the next portal will lead them home. Each display is well written and easy to picture and you can imagine you are there, which makes it all very intense and exciting!!

I highly…..and I mean HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who enjoys the genres above.
I am SO looking forward to the second/final book “The Bride of Glass” coming in October 2017.
